8 Ways to Take More Responsibility for Your Life

Do you take enough responsibility for your life? Those that do not often have challenging lives. There are so many forces working against you that it is necessary to participate actively in your life.

Blaming others, relying on luck, or playing the victim will be in your favor is a loser’s game.

Your destiny is under your control, but only if you exercise that control.

Use these strategies and take greater control of your life:

**Own your problems. **Every problem you have is your responsibility to manage. Whether you have terrible parents, a bald head, ugly knees, or a lousy boss, you are the only person that can save you. Own your problems and you will stop waiting for someone else to save you.

Make yourself a priority. It is okay to put yourself first. If you do not, who else will? No one. You and your life are important to you. If you do not make yourself the priority in your life, your life will suffer for it.

Avoid complaining. Complaining suggests that you do not have control over the thing you are complaining about. If you cannot fix the thing that is bothering you, then why complain? If you can fix it, then fix it. But do so without whining.

Avoid making excuses. Excuses keep you stuck. Some people look for excuses so they can let themselves off the hook and take a passive position. Instead of making excuses, look for solutions. Excuses undermine your power over your life.

Schedule your time. How you spend your time is critical. Avoid living your life by the seat of your pants. Make a plan for each day and follow it to the best of your ability. You will be stunned by how much more control you have over your life if you use your time wisely.

Choose the people you allow into your life very carefully. People can wreak havoc quickly. They are unpredictable, distracting, and tend to act in their own best interests. You have an obligation to yourself to be very picky about the people in your life.It is better to be a little lonely than to deal with the burden of something that is not a positive addition to your life.

**Track your time. **Make it a habit to review how you are spending your time each day. At the top of each hour, ask yourself how you spent the last hour. You will find yourself making better choices if you develop this habit of checking in with yourself.

See yourself accurately. This is incredibly challenging to correct, but, it is likely, you do not see yourself accurately. It causes a lot more discomfort for you than you may realize.You might not know how you come across to others or what it is about you that people like and do not like. You underestimate and overestimate yourself in many ways.It is not necessarily enjoyable to see yourself accurately, but it is certainly helpful.

It is important to take full responsibility for your life. Acknowledging that your life is your responsibility gives you the power to control the outcome of your life. You will feel better about yourself and your future if you accept full responsibility for your life.

It is part of becoming an adult, but it is more than that. There is not another good option. To refuse to take responsibility for your life puts you at the mercy of others. No one will ever care about your life more than you do.

The only way to have a great life is to be responsible for every aspect of it!

Deepest blessings on your journey...
